Those eggs at the top of the page  look delicious!

QM, so far, so good! The eggs came out perfect. I usually keep them at least a week before boiling - it helps with the perling. These were not as old.

Worked for the pitatoes, too.

Teo things I learned today about cooking.

1. Instead of hard boiling eggs, they can be steamed. The advantages of steaming are supposedly they peel easier (mine did), the yolks are a prettier yellw with no grey edge (mine were), and if they are cracked, the egg remains intact and does not ooze its innards into the boiling water. At least with this one try, all 3 of those were true.

Since I had the steamer out, I steamed potatoes too. I was having issues with hone-grown potatoes popping like big messy popcorn when boiling, even when I jabbed them with a fork. Steaming worked for them too.

Im an old guy who still has a lot to learn about cooking,

McDonald's operator responds to claims of worms in burgers

Mayfield resident Madison Stephens told WPSD-TV that she visited the local McDonald’s on Sunday and purchased food for her and her 1-year-old son. She says that as she was about to bite into her hamburger, a live worm fell out.

At the McDonald’s in Draffenville, about 25 miles away from Mayfield, Lacey Jo Lovett says she also found a worm in her burger on Tuesday.

Stephens says she contacted McDonald’s about the
incident, and they sent her a $10 gift card.

I leaned in the meantime that tofu must be marinated in watery things, but not in oil. Oil prevents the tofu from absorbing the spices. So I'll find some sauces or whatever - there was nothing in the fridge...

Fried the left-over tofu and put it in a beetroot salad. Very nice!

Chris, even though I'm not into tofu, your recipe does sound good.

Daniel's stir fry meal with soy sauce gives me a plan for tomorrow's supper. (Tonight's is already set--cooked pasta over a tomato based mixture.)

I'm not much of a cook but I started marinating tofu, in a little water, garlic, soy sauce and some left-over vindaloo paste. That was rather good. Any ideas about this are welcome!

Tonight we had stir fry with tomatoes, red bell and mildly hot peppers, onion, garlic, and two pods of okra so far.  stir fried, mixed with scrambled eggs, and topped onto rice.  Nice spicy meal.

I started tomorrow's sourdough starter.  This one is another attempt at whole-wheat sourdough.  I let the last attempt go too long, and it turned into a log the consistency of wood.  Then I made a loaf with unbleached white bread flour to rebuild my confidence.

Randy, I'm not aiming to lose weight, and kind of nonplussed that I have.  It's not return of cancer - the last scan was still NED (No Evidence of Disease).  Just loss of that workplace situation, cortisol stress response, and the good fortune to like gardening and cooking. I would be happy to get to my pre-medical school weight, and we're not far from it.

Oh wow, peach pie!  I DO have a peach tree with lots of fruit.  Almost ripe. There's a thought!

I bet there are apricots in the store.  Apricot pie is heaven!
